The majority of Americans are pro-life. The question is what are we going to do about it? I’ll tell you what… Hold Lawmakers Accountable!
By exploiting the emotions of the vulnerable, and the sympathies of the uninformed, society is on its way to the regulated killing the ‘imperfect,’ ‘who are going to die anyways.’ These, as we are regularly told, are those who, ‘cost us the most money’ and ‘are a burden to the healthcare system.’
Remember, Healthcare Reform is NOT designed to give more care to those who actually need it, because that is ‘costly.’ The goal of healthcare reform is to control costs. Killing the depressed is a cost-saver.
– Brian Johnston, Executive Director California ProLife Council
The United States Senate can grant eternal life. I wish I was kidding, but the healthcare bill that passed the Senate with the support of Feinstein and Boxer contained language that prohibits future lawmakers from ever changing the Independent Medicare Advisory Board from being considered…ever.
Language was inserted that says “it shall not be in order in the senate or the house of representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection.”
Hats off to Sen. Jim Demint for this find. Of course this board will be charged with finding ways to reduce “costs” for Medicare. Other countries with government controlled health care reduce “costs” by reducing care and patients.
Eternal life for rationing, but an earlier death for some neglected Americans. Some Christmas present.
President Obama and Nancy Pelosi hold the Canadian health care system up as a prototype for the United States. This video, produced by the Reason Foundation, the story of a Canadian women who waited three years for a hip replacement and finally went to the United States to get the care she needed. If the government takes over, Americans will be in the waiting room for years not hours.
“Learning through Killing”
The Dutch are the post-War leaders in the concept of intentionally killing those who are perceived to be, ‘lacking a quality life.’ While practitioners tend to hide behind the notion that one must ask, the government itself has chronicled many acts of unrequested euthanasia.
But instead of bringing a “Brave New World” of medical freedom and vibrant living it has created medical madness and confusion. Fear and abandonment are its fruit.
This is a forum for pro-life individuals from throughout the state to communicate, organize and educate their fellow prolifers.
In the Health Care debate one issue always seems to bubble to the top.
Why is the abortion funding so important?
A June 2009 Guttmacher Institute (a pro-abortion research arm) commissioned a study that found that one in 4 that would seek a taxpayer-funded abortion don’t have one if funding is unavailable.
On August 19, 2009 — In a conference call with supporters, President Obama said that it is a “fabrication” to say that the legislation backed by the White House would result in “government funding of abortions,” and that this is “untrue.”
The President and his surrogates have continued that line.
Several weeks after his initial remarks, the house adopted the Capps amendment.
The committee, 30 – 28, approved it narrowly with most but not all Democrats voting in favor and no Republicans backing it.
The Capps amendment states that some abortions “shall” be covered by the “public option” plan, specifically those types of abortions that Congress allows to be covered under Medicaid, under the so-called “Hyde Amendment,” which has been attached regularly to appropriations bills for many years. These are abortions performed in cases or rape or incest, or to save the life of the mother.
As for other types of abortions, the Capps amendment leaves it to the secretary of Health and Human Services to decide whether or not they will be covered. It says, “Nothing in this Act shall be construed as preventing the public health insurance option from providing” abortion services that would not be legal for Medicaid coverage.
The Capps Amendment MANDATES that the public plan cover any Medicaid-fundable abortions, and AUTHORIZES the secretary to cover all other abortions. From day one, she [Secretary Kathleen Sebelius] is authorized to pay for them all. “
While running for President Barack Obama told Planned Parenthood “In my mind, Reproductive care is essential care. It is basic care, and so it is at the center and at the heart of the plan that I propose.” He stated that, “What we’re doing is to say that we’re gonna set up a public plan that all persons and all women can access if they don’t have health insurance. It’ll be a plan that will provide all essential services, including reproductive services.”
The record on Life for this administration is clear. The president overturned the prohibition on taxpayer funding being used to support the abortion industry overseas, reaffirmed support for the tragic Roe vs. Wade decision and appointed dozens of pro-abortion activists and lawmakers to key posts in his administration.
One of them is the Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who as a Governor vetoed a ban on late term abortions.
The House bill gives HER the power to decide about abortion funding.
Finally there is one way to know for sure that abortion is provided for in the Health care bill. The amendments to specifically exclude it were defeated.
On July 30, Rep. Joseph Pitts (R-PA), with co-sponsors Reps. Stupak and Roy Blunt (R-MO), offered an amendment that excluded any mandate for abortion coverage, except to save the mother’s life and in cases of rape or incest. At first the Pitts amendment passed, 31-yes, 27-no. Rep. Waxman moved to reconsider the vote. On the second vote, the Pitts Amendment failed, 29-yes, 30-no.
Rep. Stupak, with co-sponsor Rep. Pitts, offered an amendment specifying that no funds authorized by the Act may be used to pay for any abortion or cover the costs of any health plan that includes coverage for abortion, except to save the mother’s life or in cases of rape or incest. The Stupak amendment failed, 27-yes, 31-no.
If funding and subsidies aren’t in the plan, why won’t Congress vote to say just that?
So the President gets on the phone with a bunch of Rabbis. He tosses some Hebrew greetings. He then tells them the purpose of his call, “Government partners with God in Life and Death decisions.”
Nineteen Congressional Democrats have signed a letter declaring opposition to a national health care plan mandate that includes abortion directly or indirectly.
Part of the letter states:
“We cannot support any health care reform proposal unless it explicitly excludes abortion from the scope of any government-defined or subsidized health insurance plan,”
It is a start.
I couldn’t help but notice the articles about more tapes of former President Richard m. Nixon being released to the public. One little tidbit in there showed me hoe deep the Eugenics movement has penetrated the thought process of Americans.
In the tape, on the day after the notorious Roe vs. Wade decision. Nixon revelaed his oppostion to abortion EXCEPT in the cases of inter-racial babies and rape. Inter racial babies?
How Margaret Sanger of him. Margaret Sanger a proud advocate of eugenics and founder of Planned Parenthood. She “of course was a racist . These are her words about the “negro project”:
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…..” Dec. 10, 1939
But this attitude can be found today. In 1980, Edward Allred, the founder of California’s largest chain of abortion clinics told the San Diego Union Tribune; “I’d set up a clinic in Mexico for free if I could. Maybe one in Calexico would help. The survival of our society could be at stake.”
Nixon, Sanger, Allred and racism are all part of the abortion debate. For too long too many have used abortion as a way to get at miniorities and people different from themselves. All life is precious regardless of color.
President Obama and the Congress are running as fast as they can to nationalize the health insurance industry. There has been little focus on the high cost government health care can cost. It is more than money, it can be your life.
Just yesterday, the Senate Committee looking at the plan rejected an anti-health care rationing amendment. See dead people are cheap to treat.
Sunday’s Pasadena Star-News ran a wonderful opinion piece ( by me)showing the costs of more life threatening bureaucracy being placed in charge of Life and death decisions.
